Representing Victims in Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Money cannot bring back your loved one. But a wrongful death lawsuit may help your family find answers, pursue accountability, and eventually give you some peace of mind. We empathize with your suffering. Our goal is to offer support and guidance during this very difficult time.
Handling the legal matters involved in a wrongful death claim can be very difficult on your family. Not to mention taking care of the day-to-day tasks and finances when a loved one suddenly dies. Especially when that loved one was the primary source of income for the family.
Wrongful Death Claims Fall Under State Law
Family members of the victim should know that wrongful death claims are typically brought under state law. While the laws are relatively similar across the different states in our region, there are some key differences. Ensure that your family is properly protected. Work with a wrongful death attorney who has experience handling wrongful death claims.
Mississippi Wrongful Death Lawsuits: Wrongful death cases in Mississippi are generally brought under Mississippi Code section 11-7-13. You should work with a lawyer who can make sure that you present a strong claim based on the law in Mississippi and the Mississippi wrongful death statute.
Arkansas Wrongful Death Lawsuits: Arkansas Code section 16-62-102 governs wrongful death claims. After a wrongful death accident in Arkansas, consult with a wrongful death lawyer familiar with the law. You need an attorney who has the skills to bring a lawsuit on behalf of your family member.
Recovering Compensation for Your Loved One
At our firm, we devote our entire resources to seek full compensation on your behalf. We want you to focus on your family. The goal is minimizing the financial impact caused by a fatal accident. As the survivor of your loved one, you may be able to recover damages in a wrongful death claim. Depending on the specific circumstances of your claim, this could include financial compensation for:
- Any monetary losses related to the death, including funeral and burial expenses;
- All incidental economic damages related to the accident;
- The loss of benefits, such as health insurance; and
- The loss of love, companionship and consortium.
Large insurance companies defend most wrongful death claims. Sadly, even in this tragic time, the big insurance companies do not play fair with victims. Insurers work aggressively to limit the compensation they pay in wrongful death cases. An experienced attorney is vital to make certain that the beneficiaries of the deceased receive the proper compensation for their losses. In a wrongful death case, compensation intends to aid the family of the victim.
